Does it cost anything to be in the Artist Registry?

The Arts Council for Long Beach is proud to support artists who live and work in Long Beach. There are no fees to be listed in the ACLB Artist Registry.

Do I need to live in Long Beach?

The Arts Council for Long Beach serves Long Beach artists. In order to qualify for inclusion in the ACLB Artist Registry, you must live in Long Beach.

Some exceptions can be made for artists that don’t live in Long Beach, if they do a significant amount of work, exhibiting, or teaching in Long Beach. If you do not live in Long Beach, but believe that you qualify, please be sure to include information on your Long Beach-based work when submitting your form.

What are the requirements to be included in the ACLB Artist Registry?

The core requirements for inclusion in the Artist Registry is providing three (3) samples of work for each primary category. For example, if an artist were both a performing artist and a visual artist, they would submit three samples of their work as a performing artist and three samples of their work as a visual artist.

Samples of work can include an image of the work, a link to a review or an article, an embedded video or audio track, and image of a performance, etc.  If you feel there is no way to provide samples of your work, please contact us.


How are the Artist Registry submissions reviewed?

Each submission to the Artist Registry is reviewed individually by a staff member of the Arts Council. We review primarily for completion, any content that violates the Terms of Service, and to be sure the work samples are as described and entered properly.
